The attorney for Ms. Brown rested their case today. That meant that Ms. Osteen’s attorney took over.
Today’s testimony featured three first-class passengers.
“There wasn’t anything that occurred that she could be suing over,” said Laura Knoppe, who was sitting in the first row of first-class seats, closest to where Brown said the attack took place. She said she never heard Osteen yelling or screaming.
Another passenger, Barbara Shedden, who had been called by Brown’s attorney, described the interaction between Brown and Victoria Osteen as “just a power of the wills. It was very authoritative on both parts.” Shedden said Victoria Osteen was out of line by standing in the aisle while she waited for the spill to be cleaned up, but testified she doubted an attack took place.
A third passenger, James Steele, said he never heard any yelling or sounds of a physical altercation.
I’m hopeful this gets sent to the jury soon.
